Tim Robbins and his crew had just completed post-flood cleanup work at Warwick Mall in Rhode Island when a call came asking him to prepare for a job in Nashville.

Within two hours, 45 project managers and other supervisors from his Servpro of the Seacoast franchise in Dover, N.H., were on a chartered jet or commercial flights that would land here four hours later.

Trucks stocked with equipment such as air scrubbers, pressure washers and dehumidifiers also hit the roads, destined for use here in recovery efforts from floodwaters that overtook Nashville during the first weekend of May. From The Tennessean.
